DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE ANDROID AND PC VERSIONS

In order to make the Android port as playable as possible I needed to make some small changes to the game.

In PC version you have a lantern, but porting this over to Android brought too many problems. I decided to leave the lantern out from the Android version and instead expand the environmental lighting. While doing so I also added more color which makes the Android port more pretty to look at.

To have as smooth experience as possible I capped the Android version to 30 frames per second. However, DISTRAINT has a very little motion so this is barely even noticeable.

One of the best adventure games with a sick storyline and a hint of dark humour! Perfect pixelated representation of the amazing storyline.

I seldom play horror games (too scared to even download them lol) and currently my favorite one is DISTRAINT. It’s a 2D pixelated horror game that really tells a good story. I would recommend it to people who love story-rich games and also enjoy some slight psychological horror.

I didn’t finish it. But I still like it. Sorry, I didn’t finish it. I felt a little sick while I played half of progress. So I stopped. I've played a lot of horror games, so it’s rare for me. His art style makes it a really unique psychological horror game which is a strong mind pollutant for me. In a sense, he did a great job at his sound design which builds a tense, haunting atmosphere. Even though, I like DISTRAINT’s story. It’s simple and straightforward, but the way it’s told makes it come alive. The game is about a man named Price who is working for a company that seizes people’s property. So I need to kick an elderly woman, a recluse in the woods out of their home to get the money. The developer uses horror elements like blood dripping and television static and elephant (which really scared me, I don’t know why )to represent Price’s guilty conscience.
